I have many old Kodak cd's in their PCD format and can't open them.  I found someone saying they would have a plug in in Photoshop but no deal.  Anyone know how to open/convert these files to jpg or something that works in Adobe?

I haven't used it but it should work.

pcdtojpeg worked very well for me. By correctly interpreting the PCD colorspace it prevents the image highlights from blowing out the way some other converters do.

Thanks, yes that will work. I didn't like the price.  I also found reaconverter7 which has a better user interface but cost even more.

Take a look at IrfanView, its free and claims that it can read PCD files.

Bad form, Randy!

This converter puts a *watermark* on its output until you throw $110 at it, or accept the hand it puts in your pocket at $10/month until the end of time.  There are plenty of other equally effective converters for this obsolete format available for free.  At LEAST add its cost to your post instead of posting it as if it's Revealed Truth.

Kodak's original PCD software was released on every PhotoCD sold; it was baked in for convenience.  Adobe used to have a .PCD converter built into PhotoShop.  I used to run a lab where we used both of these professionally in days long past, and Contenta is simply unrepentant mercenary.

Boo.  VERY bad form, old boy.

I had one Kodak Photo CD with PCD files.  I tried IrfanView.  It's free and it worked.  I opened each pcd file and saved as tiff.  It also has a batch function which I did not try.
